"The colleagues present at the station were very shocked, but fortunately they were safe. Because the train traffic had already stopped earlier this afternoon, there were hardly any passengers at the station."



Rintel: "Fortunately our colleagues were able to get to safety in time, but this has not left anyone in the cold clothes. The station is a mess. My thanks go to the emergency services. The station must be a safe place for colleagues and travelers. We are now driving for the people with a crucial role in the fight against the corona virus. They must be able to get home safely. "

Grapperhaus: police rightly crack down on rioters


Mayors and police rightly cracked down on rioters this weekend.

Minister Ferd Grapperhaus (Justice and Security) responded on Sunday to the disturbances and riots in various places in the country.

Especially in Eindhoven and Amsterdam, demonstrations against corona measures got out of hand and the police intervened hard.



According to Grapperhaus, the unrest has nothing to do with demonstrating against the corona policy, but it concerns criminal behavior.

"This weekend it has been restless in various places in the Netherlands. Shocking images of riots, looting and arson are circulating. This has nothing to do with demonstrating against corona measures. This is simply criminal behavior; people who consciously target the police, ME, journalists and others. Attacking aid workers. The mayors and police have rightly taken harsh action. "
